Meizu MX4 wood rear panels go on sale

Motorola might have started it, but it is Chinese phone makers that are keeping the wood look fad going.

OnePlus, Xiaomi and now Meizu, are all Chinese phone makers are getting wood or wood look replacement rear panels for their phones. OnePlus’s recent decision to cancel their genuine wood panels is an indication of how difficult it is to meet the tolerances required to fit a smartphone, which probably explains why these panels are only wood look.

I found these today while browsing through Taobao (Chinese Ebay). The panels come in a number of colours and wood grain styles and only cost 38 Yuan to Chinese customers.

The panels are not Meizu products but made by a third-party manufacturer who are also offering various other styles, but these wood look models are by far the most eye-catching.
